As a Crown corporation, JCCBI recognizes the importance of sound governance, effective risk management, and ethical business practices in all its activities.

The Corporation therefore pays close attention to risk management, accountability, ethical conduct, and sustainable procurement throughout its operations.

JCCBI’s 2020-2023 sustainable development plan was created in line with the orientations of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy and the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.

An internal Sustainable Development Committee of senior administrators and managers meets regularly to ensure the sustainable development plan is being implemented.

5  goals from the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy to which the Corporation contributes

Goal 1: effective action on climate change

A low-carbon economy contributes to limiting global average temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius and supports efforts to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The Government of Canada will transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient, and green operations.
